Agreement between developer, Target calls for ‘Broadway Plaza Shopping Center’ that could include Buckle, two restaurants
QUINCY — A tract of land, owned by NLA Quincy LLC, along Broadway in front of Target will be converted into a shopping center, according to a document filed Tuesday in the Adams County Recorder’s Office.
An 84-page operation and easement agreement between Target Corporation and Alabama-based developer NLA Quincy, LLC, for a “Broadway Plaza Shopping Center” contains information about easements, construction, maintenance and repair and future operation of the shopping center.
The agreement includes exhibits of the legal description of the Target tract at 3701 Broadway as well as three “developer parcels” in the southwest corner of the lot. It also has an architect’s drawing from Ohio-based ADA Architects showing front entry, side entry and rear views of the Raising Cane’s restaurant to be built at 3601 Broadway. Target will lease each parcel.
Muddy River News reported in August that Raising Cane’s, an American fast-food restaurant chain specializing in chicken fingers, will be built on a 5,200-square-foot lot on the corner of 36th and Broadway. Chuck Bevelheimer, director of planning and development for the city of Quincy, confirmed a building permit was issued in November for Raising Cane’s.
Construction work has not yet started at the Raising Cane’s site.
“They can start whenever they feel the mood is right for them,” Bevelheimer said. “I thought they’d start by now, but they’re going to get going here soon.”
Also included in the agreement is a site plan showing “Developer Parcel 2” and “Developer Parcel 3” to the east of Raising Cane’s on the north side of Broadway. One parcel is 2,400 square feet, and the other is 2,500 square feet.
The agreement lists what is NOT allowed on any of the tracts:
- The installation of an ATM banking facility
- A recycling center
- Outdoor seating
- Outside storage area
- Outside sales area (with the exception that such space may not be used more than three times per calendar year)
- Sale of pharmaceutical drugs
- Any sale of food and/or non-alcoholic beverages for off-premises consumption
- Any sale of alcoholic beverages for off-premises consumption
- Any general merchandise use
- Any store, department, service or operation
- Any beauty specialty store or beauty-retail concept store
- Any storing, selling, dispensing or distributing of THC products
- Any toy store
- Any pet shop
- Any gas station
- Any store operating primarily as a “dollar” store
Bevelheimer said the city has approved the site plans for the other two parcels, and the city is close to issuing building permits.
“We have a couple of minor issues to resolve yet, but the utility access, which was an issue where we were trying to figure out where best to get water and sewer from, has been resolved,” he said.
The document also contains drawings of the types of signs that will be installed at entrances to the property off Broadway and off 36th Street. One of the signs shows a logo for a Buckle store. The Buckle, however, is not mentioned elsewhere in the document.
Bevelheimer says the Buckle was looking at Developer Parcel 2. He believes two “fast-casual restaurants” will likely be moving into Developer Parcel 3.
The Buckle is an American fashion retailer selling clothing, footwear and accessories for men, women and children with more than 450 stores in 42 states across the United States. The Buckle has a store in the Quincy Town Center, but assistant leader Jade Wiegmann doesn’t know what the future holds.
“Our lease is not up yet, but we are planning on moving,” she said. “We just don’t really know timeframe-wise when we’re going to be out of (the Town Center) because we have to wait for our lease to run out. Then there’s several factors up going on higher up in the company that have to be gone for before we can get out of here.”
